All about making whisky
The Kilchoman distillery has launched its fifth 100% Islay whisky! A truly unique whisky, it is a testament to Kilchoman’s expertise. Produced from barley grown and malted at the distillery, this new version is 100% from Islay, from the barley to the bottling.
A blend of 5 and 6 year old bourbon casks, 100% Islay is characterised by fresh notes of citrus fruit, light peat and a sweet finish.
The first distillery built on the Isle of Islay for over a century, Kilchoman celebrated its third birthday in September 2009, with its new spirit finally reaching the age required for it to be legally called a single malt. Built using the model of a “farmhouse-distillery”, Kilchoman makes a point of distilling its new spirit from barley grown on its own land. Some 100 tonnes are harvested and malted at the distillery, providing 30% of their needs. The rest comes from the maltings at Port Ellen. Its first barrel of new make spirit was filled in 2005.
